Korean violinist Inmo Yang is the first prize winner of the 2022 Jean Sibelius Violin Competition. He was also awarded a prize for the best performance of the commissioned work written by Magnus Lindberg. Sakari Oramo- the chair of the jury- commented: “The winner was overwhelming. There is so much great about Inmo’s playing, both musically and violinistically. There is never anything extra involved in changing the spring, which produces singing and ease.”  

 

In March 2015, Inmo won the 54th International Violin Competition “Premio Paganini” in Genoa, Italy, marking the first time since 2006 that the Paganini Competition jury awarded First Prize. Fabio Luisi, the chair of the jury at the time, commented: “Inmo is an intuitive musician. His Paganini is captivating and exquisite.” He also garnered the following special prizes: youngest finalist, best performance of the contemporary original piece, performance most appreciated by the audience, and a special recital in Genoa using Paganini’s own Guarneri Del Gesu violin. 

 

Inmo made his Carnegie Hall debut at the Weill Recital Hall as a winner of the Concert Artists Guild competition, and went on to receive invitations to the Boston Symphony Hall, the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, the Ravinia Music Festival and the Marlboro Music Festival.

 

Inmo has performed with many renowned conductors such as Fabio Luisi, Neeme Järvi, Sakari Oramo, Myung-whun Chung, James Gaffigan, David Robertson, Marin Alsop, and Osmo Vänskä. His concerto appearances include BBC Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National de France, Philharmonia Orchestra, Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Lucerne Symphony Orchestra, Zurich Philharmonic Orchestra, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra, and Busan Philharmonic Orchestra. Notable engagements for the upcoming season include an Asian tour with the Lucerne Festival Strings Orchestra, a Korea/Japan tour with the Berliner Barock Solisten, Unsuk Chin’s first concerto with Auckland Philharmonia/Shiyeon Sung, and concerts in Naantali Festival.  

  

In 2021, Inmo released his second Deutsche Grammophon album [The Genetics of Strings]. His debut album - 24 Caprices by N. Paganini - was recorded live as part of the Kumho Art Hall residency and released under the same label in 2019.

 

Inmo studied with Namyoon Kim at Korea National University of Arts, Miriam Fried at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, and Antje Weithaas at Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” in Berlin. He is now studying at Kronberg Academy with Antje Weithaas. These studies are funded by the Menuhin Patronage.  Inmo is playing on a violin by G. B. Guadagnini of Turin kindly loaned by Jane Ng through J & A Beare and the Beare’s International Violin Society for The International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition.
